Directions
PREHEAT oven 375°F (190°C).

COMBINE mustard, oil, salt and pepper in a large zip lock bag. Add chicken and massage until chicken is coated. Melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter in large fry pan over medium heat; add chicken and pan fry for approximately 2 minutes per side until golden brown. Remove and place in a single layer in a 9x13–inch (3.5 L) baking dish.

MELT remaining butter in fry pan; add pineapple rings and fry until golden brown. Remove and place on top of chicken. Top with slices of cheese.

BAKE in preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes until chicken has reached a minimum internal temperature of 170°F (77°C) and cheese has melted.

PREPARE sauce while chicken is cooking.

PLACE all sauce ingredients in small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and reduced. Taste and adjust sweet sour balance with extra rice wine vinegar if too sweet.

TIPS:Extra pineapple can be chopped finely and added to sauce for an extra hit of pineapple. Replace sauce recipe with your favourite ready prepared sauce.
